Columbus State Baseball Looks to Repeat at Peach Belt Tournament


The Columbus State baseball team is gearing up for the Peach Belt Conference tournament this week.

The reigning champs enter the tournament as the number four seed and find themselves on the edge of an NCAA Tournament bid.

The Cougars enter the tournament with a 29-19 record and need a strong showing if they want to make another postseason run.

“When we pitch and play defense we’re a pretty good team. We’re just not an offensive team at this point,” said head coach Greg Appleton. “We’re going into a ballpark that’s a big ballpark up there at Francis Marion. So, it kind of plays into our hands. We’ve played very good, we won the Tournament last year, we went up and played Francis Marion this year and swept them. So we’ve played good there, so it’s lining up pretty good for us.”

The Tournament is a double-elimination format.

The Cougars kick things off on Wednesday night against 5th seeded UNC Pembroke.
